America’s Randy Jordan Waldrum who three years ago declined his initial appointment has now been handed the role of coach of the Nigerian women national team, the Super Falcons. The United States is one of the global super powers in women’s football.
Sports Village Square recalls that In 2017, the board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) seating in Jos approved the recommendation of its Technical and Development Committee for the appointment of Randy Waldrum who was till the previous year, the coach of Trinidad & Tobago’s women’s national team.
The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the appointment of his appointment as the new Head Coach. Waldrum, an American who played as a midfielder, has worked largely within the American women football circle and was head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national team between 2014 and 2016.
He will work with former Super Falcons’ goalkeeper and captain Ann Chiejine, who is the first Assistant Coach, while Wemimo Mathew Olanrewaju will serve as second Assistant Coach and Auwar Bashir Makwalla will be goalkeepers’ trainer.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick thanked Philips Consulting, the executors of the recruitment processs, and said he has confidence that the new technical crew will take the Super Eagles to brand new heights.
“The predominance of the Super Falcons on the African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles out of 11 editions of the Women AFCON competitions held so far.
“We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favourably for laurels at the global level, and I believe the new technical crew led by Waldrum can take us to that level.”
